    Sweet! That old Lami Pro back bouncer I have was wrapped so far of the spine originally that it was unusable. Now, it's one of my go to rods. Just goes to show you that when you think all you have is a bushell of lemons you really can come out with a darn good glass of lemonade!

    Nothing to get over sir!! Maybe you should read again and people should stick to the OP question......including myself sometimes. I'm done with this thread I already offered my advise and didn't have to bash anyone's rod for "lack of sensitivity" ;-). Maybe we are all too sensitive hahahaha
